Last week, I had the pleasure of taking Vivien for a special girl’s day to visit a local Denver photographer who specializes in Priceless Heirloom Fairy Portraits, and I simply had to share my experience with you all, in hopes that, if you’re local in the Denver Metro Area, you’ll check out Paul Maynard Photography.
Paul has been specializing in Heirloom Fairy Portraits since 2009, and his passion for his work and creating the ultimate magical experience for little girls is truly evident in every single one of his amazing photographs. He has a passion for photography that guides his life, and is super admirable (especially since I am an aspiring photographer myself.) He takes pride in his work, and has created a totally unique experience for kids to transform into a magical fairy in a photo session. When we arrived at Vivien’s fairy session, he completely took over and guided Vivien into morphing, physically and emotionally, into a fairy princess.
He had a welcoming home studio, and a wide variety of outfits and wings and crowns available, and Vivien was able to choose which outfit she wanted and what color wings she wanted to sport for her session. (She obviously chose pink, because, #girlprobs)
Paul has an enchanted forest, and Vivien was able to pose, while Paul facilitated the session completely and prompted some of the most stunning, magical and adorable photos I’ve ever seen.
But enough of my yapping. The proof is in the photo. And I cannot be more thrilled with the image that I chose as her “best and final.”
Isn’t it stunning?!
When I got home and showed her the image, she was overjoyed. You guys, a week later she still talks about her fairy photoshoot, multiple times a day. She loved taking the app and showing it to her Daddy, and often asks to look at her fairy photo on my phone and is seriously enthralled by it, and constantly says, “don’t I look beautiful as a fairy princess?”
This isn’t just any photo session. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that your children will adore for ages, and you will have some gorgeous artwork to adorn your walls forever. The entire experience was special, and was treated as so.
To make things even better, and to sweeten the deal more, Paul Maynard Photography is hosting his annual Fairy Fundraiser benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities Denver. Sessions throughout July and August are offered at a discounted price (and you also receive a free 8×10 gift print!) and your child is then entered into the fundraiser automatically. Online voting to be featured into the calendar begins in September, and all profits raised from the online voting benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Denver. Last year, $17,000 was raised, and this year’s goal is $50,000!
Paul Maynard Photography is currently in phase one of this fundraiser, but only sessions in July and August 2015 are eligible for the model search, so if you’re interested, hurry up and book now! (Click here to book your session!)
The free 8×10 photo is on order, and I am so excited to frame it and put it in Vivien’s bedroom for her to admire every single day, and remember her special day where she became a fairy princess.
I can’t wait to see my local friend’s fairy photos pop up on my facebook page! Also, boy moms have no fear! Paul Maynard also has awesome photo sessions available for boys that feature them as a knight in armor, slaying a huge mystical dragon! I’m so excited to take William to do it once he’s old enough! (Plus how cool would it be to have a boy featured in the calendar?)
